Return Details

Returns to original departure point
One of the Hawaiian Islands’ most spectacular and inaccessible landscapes, the Na Pali coast stretches along Kauai’s northwestern shore in a dramatic crest of emerald cathedral spires reaching as high as 4,000 feet (1,200 meters) and dotted with sea caves, waterfalls and secluded beaches. A sailing cruise is the perfect way to experience the coastline, as there are no roads that can access it.

Make your way to Port Allen in the morning, where you'll meet your friendly captain and crew and board a 50-foot (15-meter) sailing catamaran equipped with restrooms and spacious sun decks. Enjoy an onboard breakfast and relax on deck as you cruise along the coastline, soaking up magnificent views around every bend. Learn about Na Pali’s sacred place in Kauai’s culture and legends, and look out for passing marine life like spinner dolphins, sea turtles and migrating humpback whales (December through April). If conditions are right, the crew will hoist the sails for an exciting wind-powered ride.

Weather permitting, stop at a calm spot to splash into the crystal-clear waters and snorkel among native fish, turtles and coral gardens. Recharge with a delicious buffet lunch and beverages onboard, and relax on the return journey to Port Allen in the afternoon.

Great day trip!
Laurel_J

This was a great trip! We really enjoyed it. The boat was very comfortable, the food was good (way better than we were expecting) and the crew was great! The views of the coast were stunning, and there was such a good vibe on the ship. We saw turtles and dolphins along the way. Downside was there weren’t many fish to see at the snorkel spot, so that was a bit of a letdown. PNot sure if there was a better spot they could have taken us to or if it was just a bad day, but everyone finished snorkeling pretty quickly because there just wasn’t much to see down there.

Crew did a fantastic job keeping all members on board safe and attended to all the needs of the group. Very knowledgeable and experienced! The sights were stunning and the captain proactively advised us of when to hold on as it was quite the ride! We saw turtles, dolphins and flying fish!

Memorable sights, snorkeling, food and dolphins

It was truly beautiful to see the coast. Liked it better than a helicopter. The food was excellent, fresh and better than we expected. The catamaran was comfortable with lots of seating options to either get wet or stay dry. The stories and lore are my favorite. The length of the excursion was just right. Also loved seeing the spinner dolphins with their babies jumping. Would have preferred more sun during the snorkeling but it was a beautiful spot. Missed the actual sailing this round as we used motor only

Amazing experience! We loaded the boat, got the safety run-down & started heading out. We got a surprisingly yummy breakfast & coffee, tea… the workers on the boat were so attentive & knowledgeable about sites & Kauai in general. They made sure we were comfortable 100% of the time, even served us & brought the food to us so we did not need to lift a finger. We got plenty of great photo opportunities & the snorkeling was amazing. Tons of fish swimming literally right next to you & we even saw a ton of beautiful dolphins on our way! After snorkeling we got a tasty lunch & the option of alcoholic & non-alcoholic drinks. Such a great time!!

My husband and I along with our best childhood friends truly enjoyed our trip. Captain Kelly, Kylie and Max did an amazing job of making us feel welcomed and comfortable. We will definitely share our experience with our friends and give them all the information to book with HoloHolo for their next adventure. Thank you to our Captain and her crew. We enjoyed our time with you on Laila. 🦋
